Our 1” buckles, or ranger sets, take their name from the Texas Rangers who began wearing thicker, sturdier belts to accommodate the heavy Colt pistols they carried on their waists. Over the past fifty years the ranger buckle has been adapted into casual dress for both men and women and they have become accepted internationally. The ranger set is a growing trend in the golf industry and their elegant finishing touches have given them a place in high fashion. These buckles tend to be more labor intensive due to their high craftsmanship and the time it takes to assemble the front and back pieces. The 1” buckle is ideal for the individual who wants to add a little western flare to their wardrobe.
